How to clean a toilet brush.

If a toilet brush is not cleaned regularly, it can become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. A simple treatment with a disinfectant spray can help prevent the formation of harmful microorganisms.

Cleaning experts recommend cleaning the brush at least once a week, but it's best to clean it after each use. The Ideal Home publication shared the best ways to solve this delicate problem.

Toilet brushes with silicone nozzles are much more hygienic and durable. If the nozzle does not loosen, it will last about a year.

The most effective means of cleaning a toilet brush is bleach, which can clean about 99% of germs. Add 500 ml of bleach to a bucket of hot water and soak the brush in the solution for about an hour. Rinse the brush and holder under hot water and dry completely.

However, more and more people are choosing to replace bleach with eco-friendly alternatives.

Vinegar and baking soda can help clean your brush quickly and efficiently. Soaking the brush in an acidic mixture will eliminate bacteria and unpleasant odor.

  1. First of all, you need to soak the toilet brush in white vinegar.
  2. Add a few spoonfuls of baking soda and leave the brush to soak for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Rinse the toilet brush under running water and dry it in the fresh air.

Disinfectants can also help. The brush should be soaked in a solution of water and disinfectant for at least 20 minutes. Make sure there is enough water to cover the entire brush, the handle included.

Soapy water (you can use both regular and laundry soap) also acts as an effective cleanser.

By the way, you can make a vinegar solution. Vinegar is a neutralizer of bacteria and bad odor. Mix ½ cup of baking soda, ¼ cup of white vinegar and a few tablespoons of detergent. The mixture should be poured with boiling water and stirred. Dip the hairbrush in the solution for at least 2 hours and then wash it under warm water.
